Olivia opened her mouth to argue.
But then, she remembered that Connor didn’t understand these things at all. So, there was no point in explaining.
Moreover, she only wanted him to live peacefully and grow up in bliss.
Soon, Connor closed his eyes. He leaned against Olivia’s chest, sleeping soundly.
There was even a sliver of saliva on the corner of his mouth.
Reaching out, Olivia wiped it away. She gazed at him with a gentle look.
She wondered if the baby in her tummy would look like Connor when they were born. After all, they were both Ethan’s children.
In the silent night, Ethan’s voice sounded a little hoarse and weary as it broke the silence.
Olivia’s expression turned cold. She didn’t say anything, waiting for Ethan to continue.
Ethan cleared his throat.
After thinking for a long while, he finally spoke. “Connor likes you, and I know you like him too. You can treat him like your son.”
Olivia snorted. “Marina’s leg is broken, so she can’t take care of children for you. Now, you’re trying to get me to take care of your son. In your dreams!
“Who said that I like him, anyway? Get away from me. Go to your daddy.”
With that, Olivia shoved the innocent Connor into Ethan’s arms to prove that she didn’t like him. She
even spoke in a fierce tone.
Connor smacked his lips in his sleep, looking like a little bird. He moved closer to warmth, reaching out to grab Ethan’s shirt.
He even mumbled, “Mommy.”
Olivia instantly felt guilty and sighed. She didn’t know what she was doing. She shouldn’t have taken her anger out on the innocent child.
In the dim light, Ethan could see the guilt on Olivia’s face.
He knew that Olivia had always been a kind person.
Ethan gently pushed the child into Olivia’s arms. He wanted Connor to spend more time with Olivia.
“Liv, this is what children are like. No matter how many times you push him away, he’ll still run up to you and call you ‘Mommy.””
Olivia averted her gaze, but she didn’t push Connor away. Instead, her fingers subconsciously wrapped around the child’s waist, pulling him closer.
But she still spoke defiantly. “Hah, I’m not his biological mother, anyway. If I want children, I can. give birth to them myself.”
Her words had ended the conversation.
Ethan didn’t mention it. Instead, he looked tenderly at her.
“Liv, I know that you love children. We’ll have more children in the future.”
When Olivia heard that, she felt a chill run down her spine.
She turned to look at Ethan.
Ethan’s face was filled with tenderness, and the emotions in his eyes seemed to envelop her.
Olivia frowned in dissatisfaction.
“Do you think I’ll forgive you after everything that happened between us? Wake up, Ethan.
“You can’t fix a broken mirror, just like how you can’t turn back time.
“Do you think I had peace of mind when I stayed with you?”
The man reached out to her. His slender fingertips touched her eyebrows, smoothening the creases of
His voice was soft to a fault. “Liv, I’m not like you. No matter what you do to me, I will never blame
“Even if you betray me, I will never let go of you.”
Olivia felt a sense of discomfort. She looked coldly at Ethan.
If it was only a feeling just now, this time, she could sense that Ethan was hinting at something.
She wondered if he already knew.
Ethan’s hand slowly moved to her back. Olivia was creeped out, and she almost jumped.
“Calm down, Liv. I won’t hurt you…”
His gaze was weirdly obsessed. But from his thin lips came the most touching words in the world.
“I love you. No matter what you become, I’ll always love you. I will never let you go, not even after death.”
